Wherfore laye asyde all maliciousnes and all gyle and dissimulacion and envie and all backbytynge:
and as newe borne babes desyre that reasonable mylke which is with out corrupcion that ye maye growe therin.
If so be that ye have tasted how plesaunt the lorde is
to whom ye come as vnto a livynge stone disalowed of men but chosen of god and precious:
and ye as lyvynge stones are made a spretuall housse and an holy presthode for to offer vp spretuall sacryfice acceptable to god by Iesus Christ.
Wherfore it is contayned in the scripture: beholde I put in Sion an heed corner stone electe and precious: and he that beleveth on him shall not be ashamed.
Vnto you therfore which beleve he is precious: but vnto them which beleve not ye stone which ye bylders refused ye same is made ye heed stone in the corner
and a stone to stomble at and a rocke to offende them which stomble at the worde and beleve not that where on they were set.
But ye are a chosyn generacion a royall presthod an holy nacio and a peculiar people that ye shuld shewe the vertues of him that called you out of darknes into hys marvelous light
